Case Management Decisions – Athletes

Kyle Langford – Athlete

Following an incident at the BMC GP Watford on 29 June, a UKA disciplinary investigation has fully reviewed the matters and considered witness accounts of the event including the parties directly involved.

As a WCP funded athlete, Mr Langford is bound by the terms of the WCP agreement which sets the standards in relation to conduct. The actions – which the athlete has readily admitted – fell well below the standard expected. The investigation took into account the immediate apologies issued to the official concerned thereafter.

The following sanctions will apply:

  • A formal (and final warning) reprimand will be entered upon his record
  • A disciplinary sanction entry on the UKA website

It has also been determined that the following sanctions should also apply to the athlete.

  • £1000 fine, to be donated to charity
  • One day of athletics community service – to be served assisting at an athletics event with junior athletes

No further comments will be made in relation to this case.
